She was a daughter, mother, grandmother too, this is the legacy she leaves behind. She was loved by so many people including numerous nieces and nephews; “adopted” and biological. Dede helped so many people and touched so many lives. Anyone who knew her, loved her. She welcomed all the neighborhood kids and her family members to stay as long as they needed. Never turned anyone away. You rarely saw Dede without a group of children at her side.
Dede loved spending time at Riverside Park, especially at the railroad tracks. Her siblings say, “if you ever needed to find her, you would first look at the tracks”, that is where she would go in search of peace. Dede was the most caring, loving, loyal, and kindhearted person to anyone that crossed her path. She did so much for so many. She will be dearly missed but, always in our hearts.
